Mark Wahlberg and Michael Bay may be done with the semi-truck that sprouts legs and runs around talking.
“This is the last one,” Wahlberg told Graham Norton on Friday, speaking of the movies about the leggy, speaking big-rig. “This is the last Transformers. Michael Bay has vowed that this is it. So I get my life back.”
And indeed, Michael Bay has vowed that—even if he’s done so before, too.
Asked if he is “for real, this time” done with the 18-wheeler-with-two-knees-and-feet films, Bay just told Fandango, “They take a lot out of you. I’ve done it enough, and I’ve had a great time doing it. I’m going out with a bang on this one, and I feel like you gotta go out while you’re ahead, you know. I think I’ve had a good run, and I’ve got a lot of other movies I want to do.”
But what exactly may he move on to next? And will it feature a proselytizing cargo vehicle that can make some shanks pop out of itself? Bay teased answers to both these questions.
“I just read a very bloody hit man movie that was a page turner. That seems like a fun one to do,” the director said. “I think it’ll be something more serious and more adult, I guess.”
So maybe the next chatty tractor-trailer will finally have some genitals between them gams?
